A rather average performance gave RSV Lahn-Dill a 88-47 (20-8/42-20/63-33) win at Augsburg. The club keeps a clean record of 3-0 wins and leads German Bundesliga ahead of Frankfurt and Zwickau, both having a 3-0 record, too.

German paralympic silver medallist Gesche Schünemann had a remarkable performance, as she tallied a career-high 19 points, nailing three three-pointers. Even though his team controlled the game and won by a 41-point margin, head coach Nicolai Zeltinger wasn´t overall satisfied with his team´s performance: "We gave away too many possesions and points by individual mistakes."
It wasn´t until five minutes into the game that Lahn-Dill increased the pace and took a 12-6 lead. Zeltinger then substituted four players and brought in Michael Paye, who immediately scored four consecutive point to bring his team up by ten 18-8 (10′). Lahn-Dill increased the lead steadily from 35-12 (16′) und 49-25 (23′) but still had a number of turnovers.
Juergen Heinrich sent his team once 8-0 scoring run at the opening of the fourth quarter, but Gesche Schünemann made a set of three three-pointers, and Marco Zwerger added nine points within the remaining six minutes to give their side a convenient lead.
